Farmers' Market

The demand for affordable, fresh, local and healthy foods is growing.  With more than 162 successful farmers’ markets across the Commonwealth, spanning over 113 counties and 2,700 vendors, farmers’ markets and direct-to-consumer marketing are great ways to meet that demand.


It’s simple for the consumer to find the products their looking for and buying local puts a face on your food with a connection between the consumer and farmer. Every action we take in the Kentucky Department of Agriculture is aimed at helping farmers, farmers’ markets and agribusinesses in Kentucky.


You are important to us, and that’s why we work so diligently to serve you.

Kentucky Proud keeps Kentucky growing!
